Los Angeles jumps on Meatless Monday bandwagon

Meatless Monday is making news this week after the Los Angeles city council voted unanimously to adopt a resolution urging residents to eat a vegetarian diet on Mondays.

According to a report by the Los Angeles Daily News, the council does not intend to make Meatless Monday campaign a law, and police won’t be performing lunch bag checks around noon. However, council members hope that the move will push residents in the City of Angels to make healthier choices and reduce the impact on the environment.

"The issue is how does a local municipality engage in this and how do we create change," Councilman Ed Reyes told reports. "If we do it one plate at time, one meal, one day, we are ratcheting down the impact on our environment. We start with one day a week and then, who knows, maybe we can change our habits for a lifetime."

The 2 links provided at the bottom are nothing more than nonsense propaganda, and lies. You people will someday be judged for your actions. That day is coming soon.
